In its 10th year, chamber orchestra Kremerata Baltica (founded 1997) plays the adagio of Gustav Mahler’s unfinished 10th Symphony, as well as the 14th Symphony of Dmitri Shostakovich - also a ‘late work’- , with its settings of poetry by García Lorca, Apollinaire and Rilke. Both pieces were written in times of personal crises. Under the musical direction of Gidon Kremer, the orchestra brings forth both the pain and the beauty of these exceptional compositions.
